if u have already tried using me.hide,

then there are two ways that i can think of :

1st :

using "form1.showdialog()" instead of "form1.show()"
that will preserve values..


store values in registry on the event "form1.closing"
and read those values on formload event

Why not store the items of each ComboBox into an ArrayList and .Close the Form if no use for it?

that can be useful if u dont want to preserve values even after the application closes..
